Variations
  • Cheeses: Swap out the cheddar for mozzarella cheese or Parmesan cheese for a completely different flavor.
  • Canned or Fresh: Canned jalapenos are faster,  but fresh jalapeno has a bit more flavor.
  • Level of Spice: If you like things extra spicy, add more jalapeno and green chilies to find a spice level you like.
  • Customize: Add more or less bacon or cheddar as desired.
  • Crispy Topping: Sprinkle some panko bread crumbs on top before baking for a crunchy topping.
